San Jose business owners are nervous and it’s not just because of our roller coaster economy.

It’s because of a minimum wage increase that will be happening in 3 months.

Check out this article called “Business scrambles, workers celebrate new minimum wage” by Lauren Hepler to learn about this new measure that will begin in 90 days…

“’Unless I find a way to move out of San Jose,” Boyles said, “we won’t be able to offer the (classroom) service anymore.’

“On the flip side, 23-year-old San Jose State University student Elisha St. Laurent is ready for the better paycheck.”
